The mind of a corrupt Governor of Georgia, John M. Slaton
This 29-page document is a powerful insight into the mind of a corrupt governor of Georgia, John M. Slaton. Most people don't know that Governor Slaton owned the law firm which represented Leo Frank at the Mary Phagan murder trial and also during the appeals. Governor Slaton basically commutted the sentence of his own law client, Leo Frank, from capital punishment to life in prison. Slaton on the last page of his 29-page commutation says he is sustaining the courts and jury in these regards.
